Optimism and nuance: the 2022 outlook for global real estate
Publicly traded real estate markets rebounded impressively in 2021 as the global economy continued its recovery from 2020’s pandemic-driven recession. Our view on these markets remains positive, supported by strong fundamentals for many property types, an expected easing of stubbornly high inflation and the prospect of further above-trend economic growth. Rising bond yields and hawkish monetary policy, while potential sources of uncertainty, are unlikely to undermine real estate’s general resilience this year.
The following analysis is informed by the 2022 growth outlook of Nuveen’s Global Investment Committee and the investment expertise of our public real assets team. It provides our current best thinking — including portfolio positioning — on this strategically important asset class.

A word on risk
All investments carry a certain degree of risk and there is no assurance that an investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Equity investments are subject to market risk or the risk that stocks will decline in response to such factors as adverse company news or industry developments or a general economic decline. Investments in smaller companies are subject to greater volatility than those of larger companies. Diversification does not insure against market loss. It is important to review investment objectives, risk tolerance, tax liability and liquidity needs before choosing an investment style or manager.
Real estate investments are subject to various risks, including fluctuations in property values, higher expenses or lower income than expected, and potential environmental problems and liability. Please consider all risks carefully prior to investing in any particular strategy. A portfolio’s concentration in the real estate sector makes it subject to greater risk and volatility than other portfolios that are more diversified and its value may be substantially affected by economic events in the real estate industry. International investing involves risks, including risks related to foreign currency, limited liquidity particularly where the underlying asset comprises real estate, less government regulation in some jurisdictions, and the possibility of substantial volatility due to adverse political, economic or other developments.
